L&E World Camps and Teen Travel

Young Global Leaders

Our Young Global Leaders is a course for 13-16 year olds is a key component of our L&E Pathway to eventually become an L&E Leader.

Today’s young people are the next generation of thought leaders and decision-makers. We therefore wanted to create a programme that brought young people from a diverse mix of backgrounds together to teach them valuable leadership skills. Young Global Leaders (YGL) is a week long programme where young people will be given the opportunity to discover their own potential by taking part in various sessions focussing on communication, language and teamwork. This, coupled with a two day Wilderness trip where navigation and survival skills will be tested really makes YGL a fun and challenging programme.

Top 10 Tips to be a good  leader

  1. Be confident. Easy to say but most people think everyone else knows what they’re talking about. They don’t. They’re bluffing.  Speak with conviction but with humility and you can’t go far wrong.
  2. Think for yourself It’s about giving new or original perspectives to things. One who has his/her own understanding and interpretation of things will distinguish themselves from others. (If you don’t have an opinion listen, learn & research)
  3. Be a Doer Others will be inspired and help/follow.
  4. Be organized. Boring but important. Just get it sorted. It’s actually not that hard!
  5. Communicate Learn the best way you operate.  Eye contact. Hand gestures. Body Language. Tonality.
  6. Know your strengths and weaknesses No one can do everything. Establish where you excel and where you don’t.
  7. Have respect of other. Be fair to all.
  8. Be positive. Optimism changes the world
  9. Listen to others.  People are amazing.  Be interested.  We have 2 ears and one mouth…use them in that ratio.
  10. Be Kind. This is so important. Kindness is the number one attribute of a human. Don’t underestimate it’s value.
